Painswick: A restored Rococo garden in central England

 


Feature at Painswick Rococo Garden, England

This evening, I am reporting on a unique garden in Central England.

Location is in the Gloucester/Stroud region, about 111 miles N.W. of London.

Painswick is a restored ‘Rococo’ garden from the 18th century. Fortunately, the original garden was painted by artist, Thomas Robins in 1748, a valuable source of reference to aid restoration which began in 1984.

Whilst popular on the Continent of Europe in the 18th century,the Rococo style was fashionable for only a short time in Britain. The object was to provide a haven of peace and tranquility and allow the visitor to absorb the ambience of the creation throughout all seasons.

The garden is managed and controlled by a charitable trust (not-for-profit) . Facilities include a restaurant and shop. the site is a popular location for weddings.
